Translated headword: having been scrutinized
Vetting Status: high
Demosthenes [uses this word] to mean having been registered amongst [the] adults.[1] For he also refers to having been scrutinized before the archons.[2] The term "having been scrutinized" used also to be applied to those in public life, even if they were not exercizing an office of any kind; sometimes their life was examined. Lycurgus says[3] that three scrutinies take place by law: for one is the one in which the nine archons are scrutinized; in another it is the public speakers,[4] and in a third the generals. But in the same speech he also talks of a scrutiny of cavalrymen.
